Desk Caddy

The middle of April, just after tax season ended, the front end receptionist in our office left for another job. She will be extremely missed. She was such a fun, happy person to work with.

As a going away gift for her, I made her a Tilda desk caddy.












Here are two views of the top of the caddy. I used SU Tea Party DP and Walk in the Park DP for the printed panels. The base cardstock is So Saffron.











Here are the side views showing the Tilda stamps I used.
Dinner Tilda in green; Tilda with Letter in pink; Noble Tilda in blue; Jam Tilda in yellow

Here are close ups of the Tildas.






















Dinner Tilda has white gel pen dots for her pearls. Noble Tilda has Shimmerz Pixie Dust on her pinafore.
The girls are sitting on ovals cut with my Nesties. I put a Classic Oval inside the Scalloped Oval to get the "ring" cut out.

This caddy was very easy and lots of fun to make ! It took me longer to decide which Tildas to use than actually making the caddy!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed this project.

Huggeroonies and lots of blessings,
